What is a Decision Platform?
A decision platform is an end-to-end solution to extend the power of AI, analytics and decision automation throughout an organization. The platform features are detailed below.
Business Rules Management System (BRMS)
The BRMS facilitates creation, testing and execution of business parameters, or rules, all without code. Both non-technical and IT users can quickly and confidently author rules impacting automated decisions such as:
- Lending approvals
- Product pricing
- Frequent-flyer promotions
- Insurance qualifications
- Legal compliance
Monitoring and Analytics
While setting rules, users can specify which metrics to track. Realtime, viewable KPIs can feature such indicators as customer response by region or country.
Just as a decision platform enables no-code decisioning, process automation (DPA) technology enables codeless automation of workflows with no-code, drag-and-drop tools. DPA tirelessly and flawlessly performs mundane, repetitive and complex functions that can be prone to human error. Examples include:
- Invoicing and payments
- Inventory control
- Updating payroll
- Customer support of common issues
- Onboarding new employees
Explainable Machine Learning
Beyond making predictions, explainable ML provides factors behind every prediction made. Further, our clustering technology enables teams to evaluate decisions, policies and models for unintended harmful bias.
